Southampton vs Crystal Palace Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Southampton vs Crystal Palace is a crucial match for both sides. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

The recent managerial change in Crystal Palace has really turned them into a new team. They look unbelievable in attack and we think that they will actually score more than one goal in this game. We do not know if Southampton have what it takes to score here but given that they usually always net at least one goal at home, we also expect BTTS.

Match Result Prediction: Crystal Palace to Win

We think that Crystal Palace will get a third win in a row against the absolute weakest team in the league right now. With a win here, Crystal Palace will secure their position in the league for yet another season. An alternative option here is to bet on Crystal Palace to score over 1.5 goals. We think that there is equal value in both markets.

Correct Score Prediction: 1:3 to Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace recently beat Leeds on the road with 1:5. We think that they will either score two or three goals against Southampton here. So, there is equal value in both the 1:2 and 1:3 options. When we compare the Southampton vs Crystal Palace line ups, we think that the teams are fairly equal but Palace are better managed right now.

Southampton vs Crystal Palace: Form, Recent Games, and News

Southampton Preview

Southampton need to step up their game immediately or they will get relegated. The team has been sitting at the bottom for months and while there is a good chance for survival with some wins, it has to start now. They are also the 2nd lowest-scoring team in the entire league with just 24 goals in 30 games to date. They have some difficult games ahead, so they need to win points at home.

Players to Watch: James Ward-Prowse (Southampton)

Southampton have real problems in front of the goal and there is only one man to bet on here – James Ward-Prowse. He will become the new record holder for most goals from free kicks if he scores again and this is what Southampton will hope for. He has 7 goals in 30 games this season and this makes him their highest scoring player.

Crystal Palace Preview

Crystal Palace did not have a single win this season until the recent appointment of Roy Hodgson as new manager. Since that change, the team has two wins in a row and they scored 7 goals, which is literally 1/4 of all the goals they have this season. The team is almost safe at this point and with a couple of wins until the end, we think that they will be 100% safe from relegation.

Players to Watch: Cheick Doucoure (Crystal Palace)

When it comes to Crystal Palace, it is impossible to pick a goal scorer. Wilfried Zaha is injured and he is their best attacking footballer. Therefore, we are going in a different direction – yellow cards. Cheick Doucoure is one of the most-booked players this season with 10 yellow cards in 27 games in the PL.
